Penn State University notched up the technical capabilities for its performing arts programs with the recent installation of a Meyer Sound LEO Family reinforcement system in Eisenhower Auditorium, the flagship facility of the Center for the Performing Arts on the main campus in State College, Pennsylvania. At a school renowned for its Nittany Lions athletic teams, the new state-of-the-art reinforcement system is appropriately anchored by 24 LYON line array loudspeakers.
Penn State Great Valley graduate school has recently installed a Meyer Sound MINA line array loudspeaker system in its 300-seat Warren V. Musser Auditorium. Twin flown arrays of nine-each MINA loudspeakers seamlessly cover the steeply raked auditorium from front to back with a 500-HP subwoofer hung over each array. One UPJunior VariO loudspeaker supplies monitoring at the speaker's podium, and a Galileo Callisto loudspeaker management system with one Galileo Callisto 616 array processor controls system drive and optimization.
"Versatility was another key factor in opting for MINA, We needed a PA that could maintain full intelligibility for people listening at knee height while doing yoga, then provide the power and punch at night for rock bands and DJs playing electronica. At first I wasn’t sure a box MINA’s size could handle it all, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised." - Sage Plakosh, Production manager
"There are about 220 tech and business music-industry students. I wanted the best, most durable system—the 'Rolls-Royce' of live sound. DBS proposed Meyer Sound, and after even the most minimal research, I found a high regard for Meyer." - Ryan Schwabe Studio Manager, Flux
"The Meyer system was a major investment, but it was a smart business move," says Sellersville Theater Co-Owner William Quigley. "In the short term we have great sound for our patrons, and over the long run we're building a reputation as a must-play venue for top-tier acts."
